Glenn Howerton, most well known for his role as the narcissistic (probable) sociopath Dennis Reynolds on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, stopped by Reddit for an AMA today to promote his new project, called The Wilderness of James. Like with most things involving Glenn Howerton, it was pretty hilarious.

Here are a few things we learned from the AMA:

How did Howerton come up with "The Dayman" song?

Well, the 'Ahhhhhh' part was kind of a riff on Queen's Flash Gordon theme song. And I had recently been playing a few live shows with my friend Sam Witwer's band The Crashtones, and we opened every show with the Flash Gordon theme song, so it was fresh in my head.

Originally, the Dayman Nightman thing was just one really silly joke in an episode that we never in a million years thought would be that interesting to people. And then it just took off.

Will the gang see themselves outside of Philly?

I will say that in season 10, you will see our characters on an airplane.

Just like his character has the D.E.N.N.I.S. system, there's a G.L.E.N.N system, too.






After the Game of Thrones writers penned the "Flowers For Charlie" episode, and they offered the It's Always Sunny guys cameos, but it didn't work out:

They asked us if we wanted to be in an episode.

They offered us the opportunity to go and shoot something with them. Basically they said "if you guys want to do the show, we'll write something in there." We just never have time to do it.

Aaron Paul had to pass up a guest spot thanks to Need For Speed.

Aaron is a friend of ours, and loves the show, and we're big fans of his. So we wrote him a role, but unfortunately he was shooting N4S at the same time and couldn't do it. :(

On social issues and how they intersect with the content in It's Always Sunny:

First of, thank you for such an intelligent and well-thought out question. I'd be happy to answer it as best I can. The issue of equal rights for homosexuals is something that is very important to us. But because our show is a comedy and a satire, it gives us the opportunity to address issues surrounding sexuality in a way that is comical but because it's comical, in our opinions, it can be even more poignant, because it's couched in comedy. And therefore, it's more subversive. Sometimes presenting the most ignorant point of view can be the best way to satirize the issue and highlight that ignorance.

The Wilderness of James is currently screening at the SXSW festival in Austin, TX. If you'd like to read more from Howerton's Reddit AMA, head on over here.
